Keylime Cupcakes and Brownies

Old College Friends

We spent the evening last night with our college friends, whom we do not get to see nearly enough.  We had a great time telling old stories and reliving the "glory" years.  Makes me feel old when I think that we've been out of college for eight years!  We had pizzas, beers, and a dessert.  It was a great time, and I miss my friends already. 

I found this recipe online for Keylime Cupcakes.  Considering Matt's favorite dessert is Keylime pie, I thought he might like these.  They were the perfect amount of lime flavor...very subtle but delicious! 

Last weekend, Matt and I had a great "date" night where we used up all of the gift cards we've been neglecting since LAST Christmas.  We had a great time going from store to store using up every gift card we had.  My favorite one to use was the Williams Sonoma gift card.  I bought this brownie pan...its sooo cute!  I used the Martha Stewart Fudge Brownie Recipe from her Baking Handbook.  The brownies turned out very chewy and extra rich.  Perfect!

Sorry I didn't put them on a prettier plate, but we were in a rush to get out the door.  I think next time I make them I'm going to wrap them in aluminum foil and make a wrapper like a real chocolate bar.

  1. I love Williams-Sonoma. Love the brownie bar. Have you seen the ice cream cone cupcake pan? You'll need that one in your collection someday!
